Joseph Stalin (1878-1953) was a Georgian revolutionary and Soviet politician. His administration is etched on the pages of history as an example of the unimaginable lengths that political ideology will go to suppress and destroy huge segments of a population in a quest to secure power and quash resistance. For a long time, there seemed to be no measures and resources left in the land to put on brakes, and call for an end to the outright killing of many millions of Russians, including Mennonites. The names and lives of many of these victims of Soviet repression are brought to our attention in this book.
